Hello folks!

All the structure that I built to make the mold is at my parents house, about 110 km far from here. I think that I will be able to go there and finish the mold only in two weeks.

Until there, I would like to discuss the ideas to make the lamination.

To help, the tissues that I have:

- 26g/mē fiberglass
- 85g/mē fiberglass
- 200g/mē Kevlar
- 200g/mē carbon (I couldn't find a less heavy carbon here in Brazil)

Today I cut some sheets of balsa wood on the shape of the wing. THe four pieces have 29g. I don't know if it is heavy or not.

On the first layup, I want to make like this:

- one layer of 26g/mē fiberglass
- one layer of 85g/mē fiberglass
- the balsa wood

Everything cured on vacuum.

The spars made from carbon and the hinges made of Kevlar.

I appreciate any help on this issue. I don't have much experience on the layoup.
